Grinding problems with the Wolverine

Ruth in So. Cal
>Well, it's not the new Wolverine jig, it's me, but I can't figure out what I am doing. I finally invested in a jig and I am trying to regrind some bowl gouges. I keep ending up with a point instead of a fingernail. I have tried lowering the angle of the grind but I am not getting any changes.

What's the trick?

I am also finding that my knives are sort of dancing around in the jig rest.....can someone tell me how to actually hold as I grind, and later sharpen?

Thanks,

Ruth
